SAVE HAYKO's!! - Benefit Concert to Save Our Home Venue

Our home venue, Hayko's Turkish Carpets, is in danger of closing down... So, to avert this tragedy, EIGHT of our group's most loved musicians are putting on this all-star BENEFIT CONCERT! ~~~ Hayko's has been the home of our monthly Culture Circle, as well as our Intimate Nights of Music series, for three years now. However, as antique carpets are considered a luxury item in this economy, his carpet sales have slowed down significantly, forcing Hayko to rely more on his store's income from hosting arts/music events like ours...

This large event is designed to increase Hayko's profile as an arts venue, get the word out about his carpets, raise a little money, and get some media attention for his store in the process. ~~~ *Each person who attends shall also be entered into a drawing to win an authentic antique Turkish Carpet from Hayko's, valued near $1,000.00! _______________________________________________________
EARN BIG MONEY - REFERRAL OFFER:
REFER someone to Hayko's and EARN a 5% COMMISSION!

Any referral which leads to the sale of a carpet earns a 5% commission. With carpet prices ranging from $500.00 to $20,000.00, a 5% commission can be QUITE A BIT of dough! _______________________________________________________
MUSICIANS ON THE BILL:
The musicians on the bill have all played at Hayko's during our Intimate Nights of Music series, and are now returning the favor by donating their talents for this intimate night of living room-style music... in other words, our usual acoustic Hayko's-style of performance!

    The music was beautiful and the room had a very peaceful atmosphere. I also got familiar with some of the regulars from the intimate nights of music and what kind of sound they have. It was amazing to win the rug! I love handmade and cultural items; that rug and others from the store inspire my own craft projects.

    WOW, WOW and WOW-- definitely a night I'll remember for the rest of my life. 10 great acts, a great crowd, a great venue, a great cause, a great vibe, a great success. What a warm and embracing night of community, support and love. Thank you everyone who participated in making the night an AMAZING event. Most importantly, a lot of money-- and awareness-- was raised for Hayko. Let's do it again!
